We have had many household pieces fall prey to the power of those winds over the years.
We've lost backyard porch swings, screen doors, basketball hoops, trees and more.
Our latest casualty is our backyard gate.
We came home to find that the fierce winds had forced the gate free of its holds and then slammed it shut -- HARD -- literally shattering the vinyl and leaving us gate-less.
|Sad, bent braces now bending the wrong way.|
|Yup, it's broken.|
Josh is not pleased. He has already replaced the gate twice (those were thanks to mishaps involving children...he isn't particularly fond of this project so it makes him grouchy).
